Together with her you can make magic happen. Consider the side effects of being with such a woman....a secret smile as you wake up next to her, wearing a goofy grin for the rest of the day, runaway happiness, a sense of well-being...you might find yourself singing and whistling, smiling at strangers, really getting to know the man in the mirror, being the best you, grateful for each day. You just might be asking, "Where has she been all my life? How did I get to be so lucky?" She would be asking herself the same questions about you. When you are with each other, people will look at the two of you and think "I'll have what they're having."
My family and friends are my treasures. Even after romantic relationships have shifted gears, I remain friends with most former partners. I've learned that love is never wasted. I have an ever widening circle of kindred spirits that cross my path daily. Friends consider me a 'connector'. I think of myself as a Resource Queen, Renaissance Woman and Bliss Mistress who dives into life experiences with an open heart and curious mind. Love philosophical discussions. Enjoy snuggling and massage. Can be high energy or still and meditative. I am politically way left of center, support same sex marriage and as a minister, offiiciate at weddings for loving couples, regardless of orientation. "Love is love is love" is a value I hold dear; it's about the person, not the plumbing, that counts in loving relationships. I call myself a "tree hugging, gracefully aging hippie" who has participated in all kinds of marches and rallies. As a career social worker, I have a particular desire to help empower those who may be disenfranchised. I'm inspired by people who are resilient thrivers, since I am one as well. If we meet, I'll tell you what that's about.
I am physically active and enjoy my workouts at the gym. Usually, there 3-4 times a week. I have returned to cycling and am prepping to run a 5k.
I feel that I have been preparing for a partner as he has been preparing for me. The one who will touch my heart for a lifetime is open hearted and open minded. Loves to be one on one with me and enjoys time with friends/family....his, mine and ours together. He takes care of his healthy body, mind, and spirit. He continues to do his own inner and outer healing work. If he was in a heart-felt relationship, he is ready to love again, full out! He loves himself enough to be willing to receive the love I have to offer and enthusiastically and passionately offers it in return.
He would like to collaborate in teaching, writing and doing healing work. He is affectionate in word and action. He is smoke, drug and alcohol-free (or at least, only rare alcohol use) Knows that he can enjoy life with senses fully awake. Lives juicy! Well-read and curious about how life works. Politically liberal. Wants to share in all areas of our lives. Co-operative, rather than competitive. Spiritual, without neccessarily being religious. Eco-conscious. Practices tantra or open to learning what it is really about. Practices yoga or willing to learn. I've found that it makes me flexible in all areas of my life:) Financially responsible and living in prosperity consciousness.. Ready for the adventure of a lifetime! Yoga, tantra, dancing, drumming, music, reading, meditation, being in nature and writing all feed my soul.
Widowed 18 years ago, I have loved some wonderful men and made some dear friends as a result. I welcome an available (in body, mind, and spirit) partner who is comfortable with his own Divine Masculine energy that he relishes a woman who celebrates her Divine Feminine energy. I am a communicator by nature and training. In my experience, a healthy, loving, long lasting relationship has at its core, deep friendship. Welcoming a man who can handle the magical energy of a woman truly in touch with her own power (not overpowering) and confidence without dancing away.
I enjoy giving and receiving massage and am an insatiable cuddler. I facilitate a workshop called Cuddle Party www.cuddleparty.com
Reading each other poetry (particularly Rumi and Hafiz) and sharing what we have written would be delightful.
Looking forward to transcendent experiences. Wanting to explore the depths of what sacred intimacy can be.
I am loving, creative, and passionate and am open to adventure. Are you my traveling companion?
A 20 year life- dream- into -reality experience came July 17, 2008 when I had the opportunity to interview the Dalai Lama when he spoke in Philadelphia. It showed me the power of intention, persistence and surrender and never, ever giving up on dreams:)
My first book is called The Bliss Mistress Guide To Transforming The Ordinary Into The Extraordinary guides people to live their bliss FULL OUT! I was told by friends that if I was going to be teaching other people to do this, I had better be doing it myself(:
I am working as a therapist in an outpatient counseling practice, as well as teach and write articles on the subjects of psychology, addiction, wellness, relationships, spirituality, and sexuality. I'm not in this for casual encounters, but for the long and lovely ride.
My desire is to be with a Life Partner who will be in the same or related fields and willing to travel and teach and write together. We are a team in all ways as we are in a mutually supportive, completely satisfying relationship. Although the little boxes to check below don't have this option offered, I see myself in a long-term relationship growing into marriage.

Folk, reggae, singer-songwriter, celtic, kirtan, electronic, trance dance music, Woodstock era rock, drumming. I listen to WXPN 88.5 in Philly...if you know what it is, that will give you an idea of my musical tastes.
Mostly veg. Asian, Indian, Mexican, Italian
